34th Annual Ann Arbor Bike Show This Sunday

Whether you have a classic bike to show, or you are looking for one to purchase, check out The Ann Arbor Classic Bike Show this weekend. On Sunday, April 27th, 2014, this annual bicycle show and swap event will take place at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds. This is the longest-running and largest show of it’s kind in the U.S.; last year, over 8,000 antique and vintage bikes were on site for the show, and nearly every major bicycle manufacturer was represented.


A tradition at the Ann Arbor Classic Bike Show is the contest for “Best of” bicycle, there are eleven categories in all, and entries are judged by show attendees. Last year there were approximately seventy-five entries in categories such as (but not limited to): Best Unrestored, Best Motorized, Best Early Classic, and Best BMX Old School. Awards are presented for each category, and there are also cash awards for Classic Bike of the Year in two categories, Best Restored, and Best Preserved. Cash awards will also be presented to runners-up.


Visitors to this year’s Bike Show should be sure to check out the “Old School Mini Bike Show & Swap Meet” (click for link to downloadable file), hosted by Frank Mathison, which features classic scooters & minibikes.  There is also an opportunity for show attendees to buy and sell bicycles in the Bike Corral for a small fee, details may be found on the show website.


Show opens at 8 a.m. to the public, closes at 3 p.m. 
Admission is $4.00, children 10 and under are free. Admission cost includes a prize ticket, prizes are awarded every ½ hour. A minimum of four collector bikes are slated as prizes. Must attend and be present to win.
